The family of Billey Joe Johnson, Jr., says the high school football player had no reason to take his life while pulled over by police, the Clarion Ledger reports. The Mississippi police officer that pulled Johnson over for running a four–way stop says that after advising the teen to stay in his car, he heard a gunshot and Johnson rolled out of the car while he called in the incident. The case continues to be investigated as the family awaits a second autopsy and meets with the NAACP.
